Raton Science Cafe to Meet August , 2010, at 7:00 p.m., Prospecting in Utah

Have you ever planned a trip using only information on the Internet? Your regular host did this for a Father's Day vacation to visit his daughter in Ogden, Utah; and they planned a side trip to Moab to prospect for uranium. Some 100 lbs. of ore were found. It was worth only $30.00, but the fun was priceless.
Sixty slides will be present in about as many minutes. You will share in the excitement of exploration, discovery, and in learning how the uranium prospecting boom exploded in Moab during the early 1950s. You will also learn about how to prospect, minerals (uranium in particular), geology, teacher workshops, radiation, and the history of Charles Steen and his impact in the region. Did you know that prospectors found a fossilized tree and a fossilized dinosaur, both
made of high-grade uranium ore?
